76 Possible Causes for Seizure, Temporal Optic Nerve Pallor

  • Septo-Optic Dysplasia

    A 7-year-old boy was admitted for a general tonic-clonic seizure with severe hypoglycaemia (1.39 mmol/l).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A four-year-old female presented with monocular nystagmus and temporal optic disc pallor in her left eye.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A female infant presented with poor feeding, hypotonia, prolonged jaundice, seizure and wandering nystagmus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Brain Compression

    Seizures often occur at the time the hematoma forms, or up to months or years after treatment. But medicines can help control the seizures.[medlineplus.gov] 1) Figure 1 : Color fundus photographs, revealing temporal optic nerve pallor OU.[webeye.ophth.uiowa.edu] Continued anti-seizure treatments are used only if seizures occur. Coma-inducing drugs.[mayoclinic.org]

  • Meningitis

    A patient with a 30-year history of RA, well controlled with methotrexate therapy, presented with new-onset seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] mild temporal pallor.[healio.com] Two hours prior to admission, he developed epileptic seizures. Brain computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging showed intracerebral malacic lesions.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Leber's Hereditary Optic Neuropathy

    Dravet's severe myoclonic epilepsy in infancy is especially interesting as it is associated with fever-provoked seizures and mutations in the alpha subunit of the sodium channel[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Fundoscopic exam revealed the development of temporal optic nerve pallor with loss of hyperemia OU (Figure 5).[webeye.ophth.uiowa.edu] She died of bronchopneumonia at the age of 44 years, after a disease duration of 19 years, with progressive deterioration, epileptic seizures and immobility.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Familial Dysautonomia

    […] attractive modification for patients where the fundoplication may be under continued physical stress caused by autonomic perturbations, or other conditions such as uncontrolled seizures[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Temporal optic nerve pallor was present in all cases and was associated with retinal nerve fiber layer loss in the papillomacular region.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Constipation or diarrhea Inability to feel pain and changes in temperature (can lead to injuries) Dry eyes and lack of tears when crying Poor coordination and unsteady walk Seizures[medlineplus.gov]

  • Spinocerebellar Ataxia, Type 2

    Two had focal epilepsy with complex partial seizures and epileptiform discharges on electroencephalography.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] His retinal examination suggested foveal atrophy, with bilateral parafoveal pigmentary changes, and mild temporal pallor of the optic nerves ( Figure 2 ).[journals.lww.com] In severe cases, SCA 2 can cause developmental delay, seizures, and difficulty swallowing even in infancy.[verywell.com]

  • Optic Atrophy

    Of interest, de novo SCN2A mutations have also been reported in five patients without seizures but with ID (n 3) and/or autism (n 3).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Fundus examination revealed bilateral temporal optic nerve pallor in both patients with otherwise normal retinal findings.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Temporal pallor of the optic nerve head may indicate atrophy of fibres of the papillomacular bundle, and is classically seen following demyelinating optic neuritis.[slideshare.net]

  • Pituitary Adenoma

    Toxicity: New pituitary deficits 38%; no visual complications, seizures, brain injury or secondary tumors Conclusion: Proton SRS effective for persistent acromegaly, with[en.wikibooks.org] 1) Figure 1 : Color fundus photographs, revealing temporal optic nerve pallor OU.[webeye.ophth.uiowa.edu] Extremely large pituitary tumors can even cause pressure on the brain, leading to seizures or blockage of the normal flow of cerebrospinal fluid (a condition called hydrocephalus[urmc.rochester.edu]

  • Strabismus

    It is much more common in children with a neurological risk - prematurely born, seizures, cerebral palsy, developmental delay, chromosomal disorders, etc.[clinicaladvisor.com] Six (21.4%) patients had temporal disc pallor, six (21.4%) patients had optic nerve hypoplasia, and seven (25%) patients had other optic disc anomalies (tilted disc, megalodisc[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] suggested that there is a significant difference in results and surgical effects among developmentally delayed children including those with cerebral palsy, hydrocephalus, seizure[vision-therapy-pa.com]

  • Autosomal Recessive Optic Atrophy Type 7

    Exonic) Ataxin2 Ataxia with slow saccades, ophthalmoplegia, and minimal pyramidal and extrapyramidal findings, levodopa-responsive parkinsonism, tremor, chorea, myoclonus, seizures[bcm.edu] Fundus examination revealed bilateral temporal optic nerve pallor in both patients with otherwise normal retinal findings.[molvis.org] Both optic nerve heads present temporal pallor as seen on fundus photography and those are often more prominent at red-free fundus photo.[eyewiki.aao.org]
